Homer is a nice small town where it is easy to know your neighbors. There is plenty of room to have your space as well and not feel crowded. The school district allows for the community to learn and grow together while the students are able to know everyone in their class and develop lifelong friendships. There are no malls in this small town, but plenty of small locally owned shops, grocery, and restaurants to meet your needs. Most of all there are plenty of places for the children to play and enjoy nature.
Small town, the school is great, neighbors are magnificent. It's a great town as well as a great family area.
